The third and final series of The Split continued on Monday night and viewers are all saying the same thing about episode two.

In the latest instalment, we saw Nathan (Stephen Mangan) drop a bombshell on Hannah (Nicola Walker), admitting that his new girlfriend Kate (Lara Pulver) is pregnant. Although this is a major blow for Hannah, it doesn't stop her from turning up at Kate's book launch party and revealing her pregnancy to everyone. As she's leaving, Nathan catches her up in the cloakroom and she kisses him in an attempt to win him back.   

WATCH: What did you think of episode two? 

Just as it's starting to look like our favourite couple might just work it out, Nathan reveals that he wants Hannah to sell their family home at the next meeting with their lawyers, leaving her distraught. 

The last scene in the episode sees Christie receive a voicemail from Ruth telling him to board a flight to the UK. Could Christie's return throw a spanner in the works for Hannah?

Many fans also applauded Nicola Walker's acting performance in the recent instalment, highlighting the moment when Hannah has a panic attack following the meeting with Nathan and their lawyers towards the end of the episode.
